cyclists are making a big noise about being treated equally on the road, and then the likes of the OP want to go and plainly do their own thing because they "know better" if you wanted to protect yourself better you'd use a different, less busy route.
rules are rules, follow them or dont use the road... i dont blame the cop for calling the OP a muppet for going against the flow of traffic.
So it's OK for you to mock me in your opening sentence and for the cop to childishly call MVZOOM a muppet, but wrong for him to stand up to the insult and me to commend him for it?
MVZOOM salmoning is the secondary subject of this thread, it's primarily about the behaviour of the cop. For some reason you and a number of other posters here are all too keen to excuse the cop's actions on the strength of your objections to MVZOOM's salmon run. What, are you all frustrated prefects?
Put your punitive instincts aside for a moment, mitchy, and address the issue.
As for 'not using the road if you don't follow the rules' -- show me any cyclist, motorist or pedestrian (or cop, for that matter) who claims they always follow the rules and I'll show you a liar.
